Canola Oil Pathways Final Rulemaking

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finalized the approval of Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) pathways for specific biofuels derived from canola/rapeseed oil. These approved fuel pathways will be eligible to generate Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs), subject to meeting the necessary criteria outlined in the RFS regulations. The biofuels covered in the EPA’s final rule…

Canola Oil Approved by EPA as Feedstock for Renewable Diesel, Jet Fuel, Naphtha, Liquified Petroleum Gas and Heating Oil

The U.S. Canola Association (USCA) has praised the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to classify canola oil-derived renewable diesel and related biofuels as “advanced biofuels” under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program. This determination brings several benefits, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, providing market parity for canola oil, creating additional markets for canola farmers, and…

Canola Oil Proposed as Advanced Biofuel Feedstock

An article published on Agwired.com states the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed approving Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) pathways for biofuels derived from canola/rapeseed oil, opening the door for their inclusion in the RFS program. The proposed pathways, which cover various fuel types produced through hydrotreating, are expected to meet the required 50 percent reduction…
